Practical calculations of transient resistance effects in conductors are reported. Included are the current density distributions in cylindrical and semi-infinite solid conductors for an applied surface step electric field E, and the density in a flat wide conductor. Two analogies are used to yield useful results: thermal diffusion in a cylinder and voltage transients on a semi-infinite transmission line. Results are applied to the calculation of time constants of a transmission line and force build-up in a solenoid.
